» My One Regret As Military President – IBB

Former Military President, Ibrahim Babangida, has
disclosed that he still regrets his inability to scrap the
National Assembly.
Babangida, who spoke to journalists at his Uphill residence
in Minna, Niger State, as part of activities marking his 75th
birthday, said he would make amends if given another
chance to act on the matter.
Babangida said, “During my public life, there were several
decisions we took as military officers or as political officers
(when I was a dictator) that if given another chance, I
would do differently. For example, in 1989, we proposed
that the National Assembly should be optional, that is part-
“I still believe that if I had the opportunity, I would make the
National Assembly part time. I believe in that very strongly
and is parts of efforts to cut down the cost of governance
in Nigeria.”
